^ I wouldn't mind with the "there's something weird" finding than the actual finding of "something (being) not from this planet", in my lifetime.
... I haven't seen that episode but do not doubt we're some experiment for higher beings.That is an interesting observation.
It sounds preposterous that aliens are visiting the earth, but when considered it is also preposterous to believe that humans are the highest level of intelligent life forms in the entire universe. Heck, we don't even know much about what is beyond what we can see with telescopes and explorer space craft.
President Obama observed.........if alien life forms are visiting earth, it will turn religion upside down. It might turn a lot of other things upside down as well.
I remember an episode from the Twilight Zone, where a couple was driving down the highway at night and saw a hotel with a vacancy sign. They pulled in and went into the hotel. There was nobody in the lobby but all kinds of desserts and treats under glass in the lobby. They rang the bell but nobody came so they started to eat a couple of treats.
The camera panned back and it showed the hotel in a glass cube and a couple of giant insects looking down at it. It was a "roach motel" for humans.........LOL.
